    Christmas Fixin's 2019

    Have you ever tried pasta cooked by an Italian It’s never over salted and I’m pretty sure it’s an expression to suggest you need far more salt than you expect to get it right rather than try some sea water and male it exactly as salty as that! I’ve had loads of really bland pasta and it’s because the water has been under salted and when I’ve shown people how much I add they think I’m mad until they taste it! Never salt potatoes in the same way mind, a,ways find that odd as potatoes are much bigger but can’t take salt water like pasta can!

    Streamers Are The Worst

    It’s a shame this thread is a dig at streamers because the issue at hand is domestic violence and that’s a subject that deserves more coverage because unfortunately it’s on the rise in the UK and while some of that is because more people feel they can report it the sad fact is that it’s a cycle often passed through families so kids growing up in a DV household normalise it and are more likely to be perpetrators in later life The guy in this video is obviously an arsehole but it’s not because he is a streamer, there will be people on this forum reading this thread and possibly contributing who have been victims and perpetrators of it and that’s male and female. DV isn’t just about assaulting people as a big part of it is controlling and coercive behaviour often with the threat of violence being enough. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/domestic-abuse-how-to-get-help http://www.nationaldomesticviolencehelpline.org.uk/

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    I always seem to main one game, Coubterstrike back in the day would have thousands of hours if suchnlogging existed back then! More recently and 1261 hours in Destiny, fun game but mostly just shooting shit with mates and having a laugh on comms. Destiny 2 being a bit rubbish means it only sits on 252 hours and my current addiction is Fortnite! I’m not sure I want to look but it has to be more than Destiny 2 and as I type this I wish I was playing Fortnite instead!!!! My gaming addictions are always multiplayer and playing with mates online while chatting away, nearest I’ve got to being addicted to a single player game is probably Zelda BOTW with over 120 hours logged as I recall.

    Loads of salt in pasta water makes pasta taste better TRUFAX! you also put some of the water back in the sauce after the pasta is cooked as a seasoning step! Now there are Italian roots in my family and was prolly passed down by my Nonna but my wife made pasta with too little salt in it and it didn’t taste nice... I don’t use much water mind so maybe that’s the bit you are debating?

    Crash Team Racing - Nitro Fueled

    As we know Crash Bandicoot (crap bagofshite) is just a mediocre game in a genre full of incredible choice and variety, bought by non gamers etc etc etc but CTR was always pretty damn good and my wife loved it - probably the last console game she ever properly played outside of the Wii fit ( just dance genre of games! Actulally looking forward to this as kids love Mario Kart so good to have another potentially decent option

    PlayStation VR

    I got that there Firewall today, it’s pretty damn inpressive but brutal online in the 3 games I had - I think I need to calibrate the aim controller as when I did that on connection I wasn’t where I play and it seems slightly off! I also had some proper leg wobble at first but that went quickly, think I need free aim on the right stick as the notchy one feels odd and messes with my usual FPS game! What other aim controller games are worth picking up?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Just get the credit via Zeek with the 5 off code, Quidco and 6 back in gold coins and it’s cheap than physical!
  10. Im not that good, above average with a decent haul of solo wins but duos is defi my fave game mode. The S7 umbrella is cool, I’ve shot a plane down and zipped around - it feels odd and some weird graphics but overall seems cool.

    Dreamcast is now 20 (in Japan)

    I loved the Dreamcast, I had a JP machine just after launch - I couldn’t afford the astronomical import prices but I swapped my gaming pc for one (about £750 we agreed) and should still have that original box with the photos on it somewhere So many games I loved esp in genres I’m not a massive fan of - powerstone being the game I was most surprised with. I remember getting it online was a proper chore but can’t think why, something to do with it being a JP machine I guess! However as much as I love the silly machine it made Sony machines look reliable and another memory I have was making one working machine out of my original JP machine, a UK one and a US one - mainly remembered as I got the power boards mixed up and put a UK lead into the JP powerboard and it went pop and Tracy dropped a cup of tea Pure fun, Blue Sky gaming at its finest and some peak SEGA greats on that machine - Happy birthday!
